Penumbra Press, ISBN 0-921254-46-6

An easy-read novel for 8 – 12 year olds about a boy and his dog in Canada’s North. Jimmy and Denali enter the famous One-dog Pull. Will Denali win the contest or is he too small?

Rarely does a book motivate an audience to participate as this one did. And does a book touch the heart strings of the teacher reading it, as this one did.
– Teacher, Vernon Christian School

An uplifting story that is perfect for integrating into the curriculum. Jimmy’s story takes us to the far north and warms our hearts as he sets his own challenge to overcome his personal adversity.
